    I would speak to our guitarist but he wouldn't be able to hear me over the excellence of his fortissimo passages.

    The Gb hits very close to home. Most guitarists I know have serious trouble with flat keys.

    Hi WI Short Scaler :)

    When you hear him performing, you have to get a louder amp! :D

    We could say the tritone of C instead of Gb to even more confuse guitarists.

  13. I wouldn't try any of this crap with my guitar player. He reads well enough to play classical pieces and was a studio player in Nashville many years ago. He still can be a bit of a prima donna. :D

    Yeah, slowly and no big words. Hire a spokesmodel to deliver the message of “playing at a lower volume, in tune and in time, gets me so hot....”

    Can’t we pick something from the left to say to them, but use something from the right when speaking to their egos?

    What's up with that anyways? I've played with a few in Eb and they'd insist it's D#. You almost *never* see this in standard notation, but then again a vast majority of guitar players can't read music either :p
